Aziz Abu Sarra, a 38-year-old Palestinian, plans to run for mayor of the Municipality of Jerusalem next month.
Abu Sarra tops a new state list called Al Quds Lana (Jerusalem is ours), which will be the party he runs for in the upcoming Jerusalem City Council elections.
Due to the fact that he is not an Israeli citizen, Abu Sarra will have to ask the Israel Supreme Court to change the law.
“Israelis who understand that the situation cannot continue should vote for the Palestinian list, and I hope some will,” Abu Sarra said, referring also to the inhabitants of the western part of the holy city.
“We are 180,000 people who have the right to vote, we don’t have to stay on the sidelines. I believe that if this happens, ‘Bibi’ will issue all kinds of laws to prevent it; but in this way, people who think that the status quo in Jerusalem can continue will understand that it cannot continue. and Israelis” Abu Sarra said.
